The Malibou Lake man found dead after a Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department SWAT team stormed his home was identified Monday by the coroner's office, reports the Los Angeles Times.
Robert Textor, 69, was discovered with a self-inflicted gunshot wound hours after deputies — assuming he had a weapon and was barricaded inside — had set up a perimeter and evacuated nearby homes, officials said in the report.
The barricade began Sunday morning at the home in the 29000 block of Paiute Drive, after the Malibu/Lost Hills Station received a call from the victim stating she was choked by her husband, the suspect, according to a statement from Lt. Robert Wiard.
Textor never responded to deputies during the hours-long standoff.
The standoff concluded at 4:45 p.m. when a special weapons team went into the location and found the man dead, according to Sgt. Mark Bock of the Malibu/Lost Hills sheriff's station..
"The male resident was found with a self-inflicted apparent gunshot wound," he said.
A handgun was found on the scene, sheriff’s officials said.
